You could have a problem with the door switch or the motor. A problem with the motor relay or the electronic control board in the console could also cause this failure.

If the door pops open slightly during the cycle, the dryer may stop and not restart. Make sure that the door is closing properly. If you detect no resistance when opening the door then you may need to check the door strike and the door catch that are shown in the first image below. That door strike (circled in red) can be bent and expanded slightly if necessary so that it will fit tighter in that door catch (circled in green). If that door catch is broken, then you may need to replace it. You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Dryer Model 110.60952990 Parts .

If you find no problems with the door, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the drive motor. You could have a build-up of dust and lint around that drive motor that is causing it to overheat. Here is a video that shows how to open the cabinet and access the drive motor on that type of dryer. Cleaning the inside of that cabinet may fix your problem.

If that does not help, then you could have a problem with the motor relay or the electronic control board in the console. The motor circuit is traced in blue on the wiring diagram in the second image below. The third image shows the location of components in that console. That video provided above shows how to open the console. You can unplug the dryer and check the wiring connections on the control board and that motor relay. You may need to replace that motor relay to fix this problem. If you replace that motor relay and still have problems, then that electronic control board may also need to be replaced.

These tips may help you fix this dryer problem. It is sometimes difficult to diagnose and repair an intermittent problem.

I ended up tearing the whole thing down and cleaning the inside, the control panel up top, and the motor. It was VERY linty in there. I have not had a problem since. Thank you. Your links were invaluable and saved me a lot of time.

I have this dryer with the same problem. I have checked the door and it does stay closed and the switch is activated. when the motor stops I can restart it right away but sometimes it takes two or three tries before it will stay running. I am leaning towards the motor relay but it could also be the centrifugal switch. the only other thing I can think of is the belt switch which I could check. your thoughts? thanks, Dan

I got into the inside of the dryer to check the belt switch and saw lots of lint everywhere. I cleaned it all out, removed the motor and cleaned it well before putting it all back together. Will see if this solves my problem the same as Peter did by cleaning out his motor.

Q:

Dryer gets very hot and shuts off 110.60952990

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer gets too hot.

 
Be sure to take off the lint chute and clean it out. Check the blower wheel to make sure it is operational. Clean the vent pipe that goes to the outside. Finally examine the heating element to make certain it is not grounded to the frame in some way.

The major reason why a dryer runs too hot is that the air passages are obstructed. 


I recommend testing the thermostats. 

 If the dryer is getting too hot, you could be experiencing an issue with the thermal fuse (3392519), operating thermostat (3387134), high limit thermostat or the thermal cut-off (kit 279769). If you have an ohms/volt meter you can test these parts for the proper continuity. To test the parts, disconnect both wires from the components and test them at room temperature. The ohms reading for these components should be zero ohms. If the high limit thermostat is faulty, then replace the thermal cut-off as well and vice versa. They two components work together and come as a kit. If they component listed above test good, then the issue may be with the heating element (3387747) and I recommend testing it as well. You'll want to get a reading of 7.8 - 11.8 ohms for it to test good.

You can also visit searpartsdirect.com for parts, diagrams, and repair information.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

The heating element measures 10 ohms and the others are all at zero ohms. I ran the dryer again and could hear it starting/stopping every few seconds for 20-30 seconds before it shut off altogether. What now? Control board?
